African Library Project

Emanuele Elementary Book Drive

03/05/2018 to 04/13/2018
Union City CA

We are working with the African Library Project to provide books to eager readers in Africa who have very few books. Please help us by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It takes only 1000 books and $500 (plus a little elbow grease!) to start a single library and make a huge difference in children’s lives.

This book drive is organized by ...

The mission of the New Haven Unified School District, a partnership of students, families, staff and our richly diverse community, is to develop and empower EVERY student to be a productive, responsible and successful 21st-century citizen by creating an exemplary, inclusive educational system characterized by a safe, caring learning environment and a challenging, comprehensive curriculum that ensures academic proficiency

We want to start a library in Africa because...

The students of Emanuele Elementary understand that we are fortunate enough to live in a country that supports education and as activists for knowledge we want to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities. Books are the key foundation to learning, reading, and writing. And we feel we must give to those who need what we have plenty of. Help us give back to others!

Please contribute these kinds of books...

Please donate gently used books Pre-K through 5th grade to help create a primary library.

Here's how you can contribute your books...

You can bring books to any classroom within Emanuele Elementary school. Collection boxes are in each class so send your students with them!

We need to raise funds for shipping the books...

We need help getting the books to Africa. As shipping costs are pretty pricey we will need to fundraise $500 to get them there. If everyone donates 1 dollar then we will reach our goal. please help support your students as we make a difference in the lives of others.

Here are some ways that you can help...

The two simple ways to help are donations of books and money for shipping, and then we can help create a library in Africa.
